  1. Just to let you know, I removed my water pump today after another quick refresh of your vid this morning lol. Lots of great help thank you. I think the tip to release the hose was the most helpful, I honestly thought I wouldn’t be able to get it off until I used the grips to release it. I’ll update my running report, but wanted to say thanks. I have a new pump being delivered and need to fit it, but have a new found confidence 👍🏻
  2. Welcome, I was already a subscriber! My water pump let go today, was just watching your vid. You’ve persuaded me to have a go myself!
  3. Sorry to hear this Patt. The industry I work in is very volatile and I've been under the threat of redundancy 3 times in 8 years. Although I've managed to hold on I sometimes wish I hadn't. Every single colleague (without exception) that I've seen go has ended up in a better position with a nice pot of cash. I'm sure the same will happen to you.

    oil change

    I did mine recently. I jacked it up from one side, lowered to level to allow as much oil out as possible and put 9 litres back in so it must have been close to empty. One thing I will say it to give it plenty of time to drain out and don't be fooled into thinking no more will come out when it's jacked back up. Once mine had stopped flowing I jacked the car up a little to get the oil tray out from under the car, then while transferring the old oil into containers to take to the dump I heard a gurgling and it promptly started dumping more oil onto the gravel drive! Luckily, Mrs mvw wasn't in and I had time to clear the mess up ?

    I'm considering going for a 986/7.

    Would you mind sharing the running costs spreadsheet?
